I would like to formally thank all who participated and visited the fundraiser at the Yippie Cafe. It was a day in which many First Nations were represented and unified to help raise funding for a generator for the Oct 9th "Indigenous Day of Remembrance" @ Columbus Circle. The presenters were amazing! A video will follow soon. The fundraiser was able to raise $375. $100 went toward the food and supplies and $60 went to the Yippie Cafe for hosting the event. $215 is left. $50 will go toward the NYC event and sound permits. $165 will go toward other expenses for the Oct 9th event as decided by the "Indigenous Day of Remembrance" Committee. During and after the event I learned the following. Thankfully- several individuals in the community have offered their personal PA Systems. Tribal Chief of Maisiti- Roman Guaraguaorix Perez, Juan Delgado, and former Ramapough/Lenape Chief Anthony Van Dunk offered to provide their PA systems for the Oct 9th event. Chief Anthony will generously provide the use of his generator for the event! Amazingly the Oct 9th event will be historical. The speakers and musicians will be heard! I am very excited. If anyone is interested in volunteering for the event- please let me know ASAP- shoot an email to [email protected] and visit http://indigenousdayofremembrance.webs.com, Thanks everyone once again!
